a speech done now for days to react to the events of overnight? >> usually they have a foreign policy section and i think they'll add it. and, you know, usually they find a way to work in foreign policy and go in that section and it's -- you know, these speeches are, you know, the structure of them is done a long time in advance but they'll still being worked on until the last minute. >> absolutely. and also, we know through the latest developments today, the president will announce 34,000 troops leaving afghanistan, as well. another part of the puzzle if you will of us learning when's in that speech. what i'm curious about your opinion on, our first read team says there are three economic questions that the president will perhaps answer tonight. one of them is how can the united states create more jobs at home. when the speech outline is happening, are you guys talking about these are the questions people are asking at home. mr. president, this is how to answer. is it that kind of set-up? >> well, you know, usually you start out i think by, you know, the president and his speechwrite
house did during the benghazi attack. he told "foreign policy" magazine, quote, we need to know what the president's conversations were. i would vote no on cloture on thursday unless the information is provided. by tuesday -- actually by yesterday, which almost every day of the week he's changed his mind, the white house had responded to his satisfaction, but he still didn't vote for cloture. he still wouldn't vote to bring this matter of hagel's confirmation up to a vote, and here is his latest. let's watch. >> there are still questions outstanding. i believe that senators have the right to have those questions answered. the senator from south carolina and the senator from new hampshire and i had a response from the president today on the question that we had, but there are other questions. >> like can you give us a copy of every speech you ever gave? can you give us a dollar-for-dollar assessment of every dollar you ever made? by the way, if you don't tell us, we're going to accuse you of getting money from the north koreans. that's the way we will pay you. joy, you're younger than

of other issues from energy to manufacturing, touched on foreign policy and at the end reached, i think it's fair to say, an emotional crescendo when he talked about gun violence in america and recognized a number of individuals there in the house chamber who have been touched by gun violence. either they're the survivors, surviving family members or who themselves have been victims of gun violence. mark, we were counting, i think, as he went through... i know i made some notes. almost a dozen new initiatives the president announced on everything from international trade to higher education to doing something about the voting experience in america. it seemed like the president was trying to inject some energy into his second term. >> i agree wu, judy. i just want to underline the emotional apex of the evening was undoubtedly the "deserve a vote" chant that the president led when he spoke on gun control and the need, making the argument that our police departments were outgunned by those with assault weapons with criminal intent. and i thought that a speech that quite frankly lacked a lot o

the arab spring. what are you listening for tonight when it comes to foreign policy? >> well, in foreign policy i think the point jake has made and broken is probably the most important one. i doubt very much you'll hear much about north korea. there will be a condemnation, i imagine. we've been through this, watched this dance before. new leader comes into north korea, needs to show his stuff, needs to consolidate the -- his support with the military, which is the backbone of the military dictatorship, so they do something provocative like this. everyone condemns it. chinese will condemn it but they're the only country who can do anything about it because north korea's the most isolated country in the world and china doesn't want it to collapse. though china provides it with energy and food, it's not going to do anything. so obama doesn't have much actionable he could talk about. with regard to iran, they feel as though they've got the pressure on iran. they are watching to see what happens. and i don't think there's going to be much percentage in talking a great deal about situations t
of the union address, but a nuclear test from a growing threat overseas has foreign policy back in the spotlight. joining me now for our daily fix, chris calizza, managing editor of post politics.com, and mike allen, politico's chief white house correspondent. welcome both, chris. the timing of this -- in terms of the -- what north korea might be doing. we've got the south korean inaugural coming up february 25th. the state of the union tonight. the president still will speak tonight about north korea. his focus is on the economy and his outline for the budget plans. >> first of all, i generally believe certainly in domestic politics that in terms of teaming and that's probably true. we expabded it to the global state. i will say senior advisor to the president earlier today said, look, north korea was going to be in this speech anyway. yes, the president will address it. you're right. ultimately this is a speech that is focused on the economy. the president has gone a little bit wayward. i think of his own choosing to talk about immigration, gun rights. in some ways the gun rig
on topics including the economy, immigration, and foreign policy. but another big focus -- gun violence. and some of the faces in the crowd reflected that fact. the union addresses. the of congress. but seated in the hall. prominent guests who are victims of gun violence. obama. the parents of slain >> "just three weeks ago, she was here, in washington, with her classmates, performing for her country at my inauguration. and a week later, she was shot and killed in a chicago park after school." >>catherine: the president also talked about the tragic shootings in newtown, connecticut. >> "it has been two months since newtown. i know this is not the first time this country has debated how to reduce gun violence, but this time is different." >>catherine: it was after these shootings that the president proposed toughening gun laws. >> "these proposals deserve a vote. because in the two months since newtown, more than a thousand birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries have been stolen from our lives by a bullet from a gun." >>catherine: president obama made an emotional appeal to congress.
are republicans trying to subvert the foreign policy of the united states over an old and bitter grudge? let's bring in ari melber and democrat strategist julian ep sto epstein. what is senator mccain's problem? is he trying to defend a mode okur president bush or is he trying to defend a failed war in iraq? >> i think it's more iraq where we know senator mccain has long stood by our presence there and adding troops there, but bottom line if you take this as the mccain filibuster standard, then no one in any democratic administration ever gets a vote because, guess what? a lot of them have good faith and i think well-grounded disagreements with george w. bush. so this cannot be the standard. it's not defensible on its own terms and that's the problem. they are erecting a supermajority hurdle for all of this legislation and all of these nominees. this is an old problem from the way the republicans have been acting and it doesn't stand up because by this standard again you would not let anyone serve in government that you di agreed with. >> but it's based on a grudge. it's based on a bitter gr
staking hit state of the union message on the road today. >> the president sprinkled in foreign policy matters, but his focus was firmly here at home. with the details, we're joined by abc's marci gonzalez. >> reporter: the president detailed his second term agenda, the big focus here jobs and economic growth. >> the president of the united states. thank you. >> reporter: president obama touching on topics from education to strengthening the middle class. >> it is our unfinished task to make sure this government works on behalf of the many, not just the few. >> reporter: a noticeable presence of small ribbons worn by the more that be 40 invited guests, all victims or related to victims of gun violence. >> it has been two months since newtown. i know this is not the first time this country has debated how to reduce gun violence. but this time is different. >> reporter: the president also announced that half of the troops now serving in afghanistan, about 34,000, will be home by this time next year. but the focus remains primarily on the economy, with several proposals, including a plan
foreign policy guru here, head of the ploughshares fund to talk about president obama's expected announcement tonight. he will cut our nuclear arsenal drastically from 1700 down to 1,000. it is tuesday. igor volsky will be here from think progress. but first... >> announcer: this is the "full court press." >> on this tuesday, other headlines making news, solid ratings for the grammy awards on cbs sunday night. the broadcast saw its second highest viewership. 28 and a half million people tuned in to watch but no match for last year's show which came a day after whitney houston's death. nearly 40 million tuned in to that show. this year's musical broadcast beat both the "american idol" finale and last country's country music association awards. >> bill: they're getting better and better. >> pepsi is releasing a new beverage for mornings called kick start. it is a fruit-flavored mountain dew beverage coming in orange, citrus and fruit punch flavors. it is flaved with real fruit juice, mixed with mountain dew. it has more caffeine than a regular mountain dew but far less than a starb
country. our foreign policy, america continues to be indecember pencible to global liberty. the world is a better place when america is the strongest nation on it. we can't remain powerful if we don't have an economy that can afford it. nothing has frust rated me more than false choices like the president layed out tonight. the choices are not just between big government and big business. we need an effective government that allows new businesses to create middle class jobs. we don't have to raise taxes to avoid the devastating cuts to our military. republicans have proposed a plan . in other words to balance the budget the choices don't have to be higher tacks. instead we should grow the economy so we create new taxpayers not new taxes. so the government will be able to help those who can't help themselves. every problem can't be solved by the government. many are caused by the moral break down in our society. despite our differences i know that republicans and democrats love america. i say we come together to solve our problems. the choices before us could not be more important. if
in the form of north korea, foreign policy, a standoff in california tonight, the gun debate. >> the gun debate is one that's thrust itself into the nation's attention span, and the president's agenda, and this is going to only encourage that, but really the tone everybody is looking for is his tone vis-a-vis republicans. the inaugural, he had his elbows out a little bit. he was very newly confident just coming off that re-election. people will be watching to see how aggressive and confrontational he will be with them on the deficit, on the investment proposals he's going to make tonight which are modest but, nonetheless, are there. and on immigration, which is one way republicans are coming his way. >> larry kudlow, tonight you talked about the line between being assertive and confident and overreach. where is that tonight? >> that's a good question. a lot of people hope he will be more centrist including me so he can make a deal. there are a lot of deals out there that need to be made. somewhere in this, carl, i'm looking for a real pro-growth policy measure. maybe i'm wishing against
and increase on and this is on his foreign- policy legacy. the home medicare proposal came out of left field. for the democratic caucus changing the rules of medicare has been a third rail in terms of their constituency, labor, seniors or what have you. you are potentially taking what was a program for everyone and turning it into a test. >> that is going to be a big problem for the president with the caucus. the question is what he is doing he is linking it as trade bait to tax reform. he is basically saying he wants all these things refunded, universal preschool. manufacturing job hopeubs . the only way we will get money is that we trade with republicans for something. i will put medicare on the table. >> the big debate was gun- control. the listen. gabrielle gifford deserves a vote. (cheers & applause) the families of new town deserve a vote. >> the families of borah deserve a vote. the families of tucson and blacks were in the cow was of the communities affected by gun violence and deserve a simple vote. >> (cheers & applause) even if you're going to vote no at least a vote. that has bee
emergency to deal with this threat to the national security and foreign policy of the united states. we are in the process of winding down the sanctions in response to developments in libya, including the fall of gaddafi and his government and the establishment of the democratically elected government. we are working closely with the new libyan government and with the international community to effectively and appropriately ease restrictions on sanctions, entities, including by taking actions consistent with the u.n. secretary council's decision to lift sanctions against the central bank of libya and to other entities on december 16, 2011. the situation in libya, however, continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the united states, and we need to protect against this threat and a diversion of assets were abused by certain members of gaddafi's family and other former regime officials. therefore, i have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency with respect to libya. signed barack obama, the white house, f
. obama's foreign policy. >> let's get this done. send me a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the next few months and i will sign it right away and america will be better for it. >> reporter: many lawmakers wore green ribbons in solidarity with newtown, connecticut, and victims of gun violence occupied seats of honor. in his emotionally charged close, mr. obama asked congress to ask congress what it hasn't done in two decades, hold real vote on gun control. >> if you want to vote no that's your choice but these proposals deserve a vote. >> reporter: with first lady michelle obama, the parents of 15-year-old hadiya pendleton, gunned down in chicago only weeks after marching in inauguration festivities in washington. >> hadiya's parents, nate and cleo, are in this chamber tonight along with more than two dozen americans whose lives have been torn apart by gun violence. they deserve a vote. >> reporter: but calling for a vote is not the same thing as asking congress to pass a new law. mr. obama did that with immigration reform but not gun control, concedin
of the speech, to talk about foreign policy and the white house has indicated there will be other speeches on that front. i wanted to say, george, i was in the house chamber earlier this morning at 10:00 in the morning and some of these people were already in there. >> long day and a long night. you mentioned afghanistan, we're joined bid martha raddatz, our chief global affairs correspondent. the president did put a number on how many troops will come out this year, martha. >> 34,000 troops by this time next year will be out of afghanistan. we have about 66,000 troops there now. so, that is a big announcement. also, one change he did have to make to his speech today is the north korean conducted a nuclear test today, the third nuclear test they've conducted, two of those nuclear tests have been during president obama's term. >> the white house encouraged, martha, by the response of china to that north korean nuclear test. they believe china willing to crack down a little harder now? >> well, i think the response was somewhat muted from china, i think they expected more. they condemned the
of president obama's foreign policy. >> let's get this done. send me the bill in the next couple of months and i'll sign it right away. >> reporter: many lawmakers wore green ribbons in solidarity of the newtown, connecticut. in his close president obama asked congress do what they haven't done in nearly two decades. >> if you want to vote no, that's your choice, but these propoetals deserve a vote. >> reporter: with michelle obama the parents of hadiya pendleton, gunned down after she performed at president obama's inauguration. >> hadiya's parents are here along with americanses who families were torn down by gun violence, they deserve a vote. >> reporter: but asking for a vote is not the same thing as encouraging congress to pass a new law. the president did that on immigration control. charlie and norah? >> major garrett, thanks. senator, good morning. >> good morning. >> deserves a vote. >> first of all, our heart is broken for those people. all of us would want to prevent that from happening. the problem is everything the president is proposed would do nothing to prevent it from happ
very well. that's about him. but do they like the president's foreign policy? no. so these things kind of blend but generally you could say that for national security republicans, these two nominees, brennan on drones, for example, the use of drones, these nominees become proxies for policies they either question or they don't like. >> and moving forward, we're moving into this second term and the kind of makeup of congress is relatively speaking the same. how much do you think this will impact this hold on nominees, impact the relationship between republicans and democrats? it it can't get much worse. >> the white house isn't happy over hagel. they believe it's petty to hold him up when they believe he's going to eventually get confirmed. so they are not happy about it. republicans need to work with the white house on issues like immigration, for example, will this make for bad blood? yes. will it hold up immigration reform if it's in the interest of both parties to do it, probably not. i think the person who gets affected by this, quite honestly, is chuck hagel himself because he's g
chuck, like his foreign policy. he's a realist, not a neo con and he turned in one of the worst performances on capitol hill. i will be the first to admit it. could have been better said the washington redskins when they lost 73-0. could have been better and i think chuck will be the first to admit that. are you going to support him? >> yes, i am. >> why? >> he's real. really real. he's been through war, been on the front line and been wounded. i asked him is there anything you can give me to doubt you wouldn't do anything to defend this country and america. >> you're talking about iran and -- >> i'm talking everything. he gave me a very satisfactory answer. his actions of spoken for that. also on israel. we were concerned about israel and iran. he gave two very strong answers on that. i have no doubt he would do everything he can to protect our country and fight for it and draw basically strong with our allies with israel. i feel comfortable with him and i hope he would be confirmed. >> you think he will be? >> i think he will be. i think at the end of the day. you know what, t
touching on a whole range of domestic issues as well as turning to some of the foreign policy that -- items on his agenda. i thought the way that he dealt with the difference between his domestic policy call for gun violence and his -- his call on immigration was really, really notable. particularly because those are the two things in the administration now. this was the rallying moment of the state of the union was this very dramatic crescendo around gun violence when he talked about the victims of some of the mass shootings. >> senators of both parties are working together on tough new laws to prevent anyone from buying guns for resale to criminals. each of these proposals deserve as vote in congress. one of those we lost was a young girl named nadia pendleton. he was 15 years old. she loved figure newtons and lip gloss. she was a majorette. she was so good to her friends that they all thought they were her best friend. just three weeks ago she was here in washington with her classmates perfect forming for her country at my inauguration. and a week later, she was shot and killed in a chic

. we must effectively deal with the rise of violence in our country. on foreign policy, america continues to be first in property and safe guarding human rights. the world is a better place when america is the strongest nation on earth. we can't remain powerful if we don't have a economy that can afford it. in the short time i've been in washington, nothing has been more difficult than the choices. the choice is not just between big government or business. what we need is accountable and efficient and effective government that allows small and new businesses to create more middle class jobs. we don't have to raise taxes to avoid the president's devastating cuts to our military. republicans passed a plan that replaced these cuts with responsible spending reforms. in order to balance our budget the choice doesn't have to be higher taxes or dramatic benefit cuts for those in need, instead we should grow our economy so we can create new taxpayers, not new taxes. so our government can afford to help others who truly cannot help themselves. and the truth is every problem can't be solv
